Sannyasa Peeth will provide an opportunity for sincere aspirants to imbibe the right samskara, be exposed to traditional sadhanas and learn to apply teachings by adhering to an alternative spiritual lifestyle based on the principles and disciplines of sannyasa.

Sannyasa Peeth will be conducting various events and programs for the benefit of spiritual seekers, aspirants and devotees.
